    Maheswari’s tryst with destiny

    When I met Maheswari in her small hut located in the remote part of Nagapattinam District in Tamilnadu, I could not imagine the path she had travelled to get there.

    A small step and a giant leap

    In a land where patriarchy thrives, in a country where women are mostly subjugated, in a society where gender roles are not only defined at a very early age but also any deviation is severely punished, in a family where men are not supposed to feel any empathy towards women, I saw a different side, another face of India today. I was given an opportunity t... Read More
